5 out of 5 eggsSpectacular display

Pros: I love the resolution. 2560x1600 is a lot of space to get things done, and the 16:10 aspect ratio is much nicer than the 16:9 garbage that everything else is. The panel is 10 bit per color so you get a significantly wider color space (and thus more accurate colors) than a typical display. Colors are calibrated out of the box and you can select sRGB or Adobe RGB colorspaces in addition to standard calibration. I liked the first one so much that I bought a second, and the colors matched perfectly between the two without any setup. Since it has an IPS panel, the viewing angles are fantastic, and that matters on such a large display. There are a lot of value-adds like the included DisplayPort and DVI cables, the USB hub and the card reader. The included mount is the best I've used on any monitor. The mount swivels, tilts, raises and lowers with ease. The soundbar add on is also very nice and is powered by the monitor. The OSD controls are touch-sensitive so you don't have to push the monitor around when you're changing settings. Everything about this monitor is premium. Even the box it comes in is nice and has plastic clips you pop out so you can lift the box from the monitor instead of the other way around. There's also an included printout of the calibration results from a Dell technician. Dell offers fantastic support for these monitors and if you have any problems within the warranty period (three years!), even just a single dead pixel, they will cross-ship you a replacement.

Cons: HDMI input maxes out at 1920x1200, which isn't a big deal as DisplayPort and DVI both work for native resolution. The only way to put the monitor in portrait mode is to unscrew it from the mount and re-attach it in portrait. I suspect this is because it's so heavy that they couldn't add the rotation feature from the smaller models. Did I mention it's heavy? You have to be careful when you move it around since the mount makes it easy to raise and lower the display. I've seen complaints about response time, but I don't play a lot of games so it doesn't bother me, and I don't notice any lag in normal use. The biggest con for me is now all other monitors look like gross garbage. I had two 1920x1080 TN monitors that I'd planned to keep using as additional displays, but they looked especially terrible side-by-side with this one. I solved that problem by selling the TN monitors and buying another U3011.

Other Thoughts: I bought both of mine from Newegg when they were on sale. I'd been considering both the U3011 and the HP ZR30W and the price drop on this one made the decision easy. I don't regret the purchase one bit. I expect to have these for at least another 5 years until I upgrade to 4K displays (I hope they'll have 16:10 still!)

2 out of 5 eggsmeh

Pros: nice screen size,

Cons: 1600p didn't look any better than 1080p
i put a 1080p next to a 1600p no difference.
I made sure the res was at 1600P
screen looked a little blury when viewed to close
i was sooooo dispointed.
NOT WORTH $1000

4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful and works fantastically with laptop Display Port

Pros: Beautiful monitor with great viewing angles and consistent color. Extreme real estate but manageable as the pixels per inch of 2560x1600 is easier to handle at 30" than 27". Note, I was surprised to find that it INCLUDES a Display Port cable in addition to a DVI cable -- I had already ordered one from M0n0price so that was totally not necessary.

Cons: It is a bit pricey but for work the ROI is still very good. With discount I got it for $980 here at Newegg and don't regret it at all. The CCFL based display does take a little bit to reach full brightness as it warms up. Noticeable with my TN panels that pop up just about instantly, but it's really not a big deal -- only noticeable after resuming from power save mode.

Other Thoughts: I do not play any games that require high frame rates except perhaps Street Fighter IV Arcade... but I am a software developer and the advantages of this monitor are substantial. I have two samsung 23" HD monitors turned vertically on the left and right and this created a whole new work experience for me. I never imagined how much vertical monitors would help in web page reading and working with documents.

Also, I had tons of screen corruption issues for the first week, and was very unsatisfied until I started really troubleshooting before sending it back. I finally discovered that my laptop integrated AMD video card drivers had somehow gotten the power save settings out of whack. After turning on the power save features and then back OFF again to force it to refresh it suddenly stabilized and with the power save stuff out of the wasy (ie disabled) it hasn't corrupted once in nearly a month now!

5 out of 5 eggsgood for work, good for many types of games, mediocre for FPS

Pros: huge, lots of real estate, bright, nice color, good support, quality panel, 16:10

Cons: not a great choice for FPS gaming, slight ghosting, needs vsync turned on at a non-trivial performance cost, expensive to build a machine that can drive it at full resolution at high settings.

Other Thoughts: i bought this panel for a center display for work. it's a great panel for software development. i paired it with two 2007FPs in portrait mode. the vertical dimensions are very close, and the vertical resolution is the same. total resolution is 4960x1600. one could do with less, honestly.

i used to play amateur leagues in counter strike, and i would say the low performance of this monitor puts you at a disadvantage for FPS style games.

at my viewing distance i also find it too big for some types of games - i sometimes don't notice things at the sides of the screen.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor!

Pros: -2560x1600
-good color depth
-simple
-good connectivity
-solid build

Cons: -refresh rate is not 120hz
-plugging cables was painful but way worth the effort.

Other Thoughts: as for me, 120hz would make this monitor bananas. other then that, this monitor delivers!

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Display (Especially when on sale)

Pros: The overall experience of using this monitor is something to be experienced to be believed. It is simply outstanding to have this much real-estate with which to work on a day-in/day-out basis. I purchased mine after discovering how well my MacBook Air 2011 drove the same model monitor at work. When not using it for writing code and documents, it is put to the test by my main gaming rig, and it is simply breath-taking.

Cons: It gets a little warm, but with the number of pixels being served up by this beast, I'm honestly not surprised.

Other Thoughts: I was fortunate enough to get mine when they were on sale for 31% off regular price. I'm pretty tight with a dollar, and dropping sixteen c-notes was the limiting factor the prevented me from purchasing in the past. Infrequently it drops in price to $1099. If you want a 30" monitor and manage to catch them on sale for that price, don't hesitate. Just pull the trigger. You won't be sorry.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome monitor!

Pros: After my Dell 3007WFP had died I purchased the U3011 as it's replacement and I must say that I didn't think that the quality could have possibly gotten any better but the clarity on the U3011 is amazing.

It has no stuck or dead pixels (thankfully!) and works great for gaming as there is no ghosting.

Cons: I don't own 3!

Other Thoughts: Newegg rocks.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic monitor

Pros: This is a fantastic monitor with superior resolution. This is the best monitor I have ever owned. If you have the room for the 30 inch monitor, you can't go wrong with this one.

Cons: None
